Dear Governor O'Malley: 

In accordance with Public Safety Article, Section 2, Subsection 307 and 308, of the 
Annotated Code of Maryland, the Maryland Department of State Police is pleased to submit the 
2007 Uniform Crime Report, Crime in Maryland . This publication represents the 33rd annual 
Crime in Maryland report. 

The 2007 Crime in Maryland publication provides valuable information to law 
enforcement personnel, policy makers and interested parties to include those in academic, civic 
and research organizations. The statistics presented in this release are an indication of crime and 
criminal activities known to, and reported by, law enforcement agencies for 2007. The 
information presented focuses on the incidence of crime and provides an indicator over time of 
variations in crime trends. 

Maryland law enforcement agencies contribute crime data to the Maryland Uniform 
Crime Reporting Program. Statistics pertaining to crime trends could not have been compiled 
without the dedication and cooperation of all police agencies, sheriffs offices and specialized 
law enforcement agencies throughout the State of Maryland. Contributions by Maryland law 
enforcement agencies to the Uniform Crime Reporting Program provide the Maryland 
Department of State Police the opportunity to develop and present a comprehensive picture of 
crime in Maryland. 

Sincerely, 



^Jz^MM&^^.^&k^^Jc^^

Executive Summary 

An annual release since 1975, Crime in Maryland reports crime 
statistics provided by Maryland Law Enforcement agencies to the State's 
Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program. Crime in Maryland details crime 
incidents, clearance rates, arrests, law enforcement officers killed and 
assaulted, and law enforcement employee data. Statewide, county, 
municipality, and reporting agency perspectives are presented within the 
report. The statewide UCR Program was developed to report crime in 
Maryland to the National UCR Program administered by the Department of 
Justice, Federal Bureau of Investigation. The Maryland program has 
evolved to collect and report data on domestic violence, hate bias and 
carjacking incidents and arrests. Reports and statistics pertaining to 
hate bias and carjacking incidents and their associated arrests are 
released in separate publications to facilitate detailed reporting. 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program collects information on crimes 
that were selected as an index to represent crime in the United States. 
These index crimes are murder, rape, robbery, aggravated assault, 
breaking or entering, larceny-theft and motor vehicle theft. Although 
not an index crime, data pertaining to the crime of arson is also 
collected, analyzed and reported through this report. 

Crime in Maryland decreased two percent in 2007, when compared to 
2006. There were 228,859 total crime incidents reported in 2007 compared 
to 233,590 in 2006. Violent crime decreased one percent. The violent 
crime group consists of murder, rape, robbery and aggravated assault. 
Property crime decreased five percent during the same period. The 
composition of the property crime group is breaking or entering, larceny- 
theft and motor vehicle theft. The 2007 percent increase or decrease of 
the index crime breakdown is as follows: 



Murder

Breaking or Entering 


1.0% 


Rape

.8% 


Motor Vehicle Theft 


- 7.0% 


Aggravated Assault 


- 4, 


.3% 


Arson 


-12.1% 



Arrests in Maryland decreased two percent in 2007, when compared to 
2006. There were 298,320 arrests reported in 2007 compared to 305,675 in 
2006. Of the total arrests, 249,961 or 84 percent were adults. This is 
a decrease of two percent over 2006. Juvenile arrests accounted for 
48,359 or 16 percent of arrests in 2007. This is a two percent decrease 
over 2006. Arrests for drug offenses totaled 55,408 in 2007. This is a 
two percent decrease over similar arrests reported in 2006. In 2007, 
24,189 persons were arrested for driving while intoxicated. This is an 
increase of less than one percent over similar arrests reported in 2006. 

Four Maryland law enforcement officers died in the line of duty 
during 2007. There were 4,024 Maryland law enforcement officers 
assaulted in 2007. This represents a decrease of four percent over 
similar assaults reported in 2006 and equates to 26 percent of full time 
law enforcement officers employed in Maryland. 

In 2007, a three percent increase in full-time law enforcement 
officers was reported in Maryland. There were 15,465 full-time law 
enforcement officers in 2007 compared to 15,048 in 2006. In 2007, there 
were 2.8 full-time law enforcement officers per 1,000 population.

INTRODUCTION 



BACKGROUND 



The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting (UCR) Program is one measure 
that has been taken in the establishment of an effective Criminal 
Justice Information System (CJIS) for the State. This particular 
phase focuses on the incidence of crime and law enforcement. It 
establishes a method to collect, evaluate and process uniform 
statistical data on crime statewide. The Maryland UCR Program 
provides the means to forward valid data to the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation from a single agency and also to consolidate it into 
an annual report entitled Crime in Maryland. 



NATIONAL UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

The counterpart of the Maryland UCR Program is the National UCR 
Program which is under the direction of the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation. The National Program resulted from a need for a 
uniform compilation of crime statistics nationwide. Uniform Crime 
Reports were first collected in 1930 after being developed by a 
committee of the International Association of Chiefs' of Police. 
The IACP continues to serve in an advisory capacity to the FBI in 
the current operation of the program. 

Crime statistics voluntarily submitted by individual law 
enforcement agencies from all 50 states are presented annually in 
the FBI's publication entitled Crime in the United States. 



MARYLAND UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

The FBI has actively assisted individual states in the development 
of State UCR Programs compatible with the National Program. 
Maryland took advantage of this assistance in 1972 and was able to 
develop its own program by 1975. 

The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program became operational 
January 1, 1975. This program consists of the uniform 
classification, review, compilation and analysis of crime 
statistics reported by all law enforcement agencies of the State 
pursuant to the guidelines and regulations prescribed by law. 

The responsibility and authority for the collection and 
dissemination of UCR data is assigned to the Department of State 
Police in accordance with Public Safety Article, Section 2, 
Subsection 307 and 308, of the Annotated Code of Maryland. 



PURPOSE AND OBJECTIVES 

In keeping with the recommendation of the President's Commission 
on Law Enforcement and the Administration of Justice, the Maryland 
UCR Program was planned for eventual growth into a complete and 
integrated offender based Criminal Justice Information System. 
Under this program, each offender arrested in Maryland is tracked 
through the entire criminal justice system from time of arrest, 
through the courts, to the correctional system where their exit 
(parole, expiration of sentence, etc.) will be recorded. In this 
manner, a complete "criminal history" on individual offenders will 
be available for use by the police, courts and correctional 
agencies in Maryland. In addition, statistical data derived from 
the CJIS Program will provide assistance in determining the 
overall efficiency of the Criminal Justice System in Maryland and 
will make effective management studies possible. 

The fundamental objectives of the Maryland UCR Program are: 

1. Inform the Governor, legislature, other 
governmental officials and the public as to the 
nature, magnitude and trends of the crime problem 
in Maryland. 

2 . Provide law enforcement administrators with 
criminal statistics for administrative and 
operational use. 

3. Determine who commits crimes by age, sex, race 
and other attributes in order to find the proper 
focus for crime prevention and enforcement. 

4 . Provide base data and statistics to measure the 
workload and effectiveness of Maryland's Criminal 
Justice System. 

5. Provide base data and statistics to measure the 
effects of prevention and deterrence programs. 

6. Provide base data and statistics for research to 
improve the efficiency, effectiveness and 
performance of criminal justice agencies. 

7. Provide base data to assist in the assessment of 
social and other causes of crime for the 
development of theories of criminal behavior. 

8 . Provide the FBI with complete UCR data to be 
included in the national crime reports. 



REPORTING PROCEDURES 

Under the Maryland UCR Program, law enforcement agencies submit 
specified Uniform Crime Reports. The necessary information for 
each of the required reports is gathered from each agency's record 
of complaints, investigations and arrests. 

Crime data and information is submitted monthly by state, county 
and municipal law enforcement agencies on the number of offenses 
known to them in the following crime categories: 

(1) Criminal Homicide 

(2) Forcible Rape 

(3) Robbery 

(4) Assault 

(5) Breaking or Entering 

(6) Larceny- theft 

(7) Motor Vehicle Theft 

(8) Arson* 

The count of offenses is taken from the record of complaints 
received by law enforcement agencies. This information comes from 
victims, witnesses, other sources or discovered by law enforcement 
during their own operation. Complaints determined by subsequent 
investigation to be unfounded are eliminated from the count. The 
resulting number of "actual offenses known to law enforcement 
agencies" in these crime categories are reported without regard 
for whether anyone is arrested, stolen property is recovered, 
local prosecution policies or any other consideration. 

Reported offenses are recorded by the municipality and county in 
which they occur. Municipal law enforcement agencies report those 
crimes which occur within the cities and state. County agencies 
report those crimes which occur in the counties outside the 
cities . 

A supplemental report is also submitted each month showing the 
value of stolen and recovered property, the type of property and 
the type of offense within a crime category in which it was taken. 
This report also shows the number of stolen vehicles recovered 
locally and by other jurisdictions. In addition, each agency 
reports the number of persons arrested by them or other agencies 
for crimes which have occurred within their jurisdiction. The 
arrest report also shows the age, sex and race of those arrested 
and the disposition of juveniles by the arresting agency. When 
applicable, supplemental reports are submitted regarding the 
persons, weapons and circumstances, etc., involved in homicides, 
domestic violence incidents, officer assaults and "carjackings." 
In addition, police employee data is collected on an annual basis. 

♦Monthly arson reports are submitted for law enforcement agencies by the State 
Fire Marshal's Office and designated county agencies. 



REVIEW PROCESS 

A major concern in the collection of crime statistics for law 
enforcement agencies throughout the state is the uniformity and 
accuracy of data received. Program aides, such as guides and 
instructional classes, do not necessarily guarantee the accuracy 
of the reports submitted by the contributor's, therefore, 
additional controls are necessary. 

Each report received by the UCR section is recorded, examined and 
reviewed for mathematical accuracy and possibly, more importantly, 
for reasonableness. The review process includes numerous checks 
to ensure the validity of information. The elimination of 
duplicate reporting by individual contributors receives particular 
attention. Minor errors are corrected by telephone contact with 
the contributors. Substantial variations and errors are adjusted 
through personal contacts. The personal contacts are invaluable 
to the accuracy and quality of reporting. Field Records 
Representatives are engaged in a constant educational effort, and 
as such, provide a vital link between the UCR Program and the 
contributor. 



POPULATION DATA 

The computation of crime rates, as they appear in this report by 
municipality, county and state are based on the latest available 
population estimates for the year. These population estimates are 
provided by the Federal Bureau of Investigation through the 
cooperation and assistance of the United States Bureau of Census. 



LIMITATIONS OF A UNIFORM CRIME REPORTING PROGRAM 

Information currently collected by the Maryland Program is 
generally the same as that gathered by the National System, and 
the methods of classifying and scoring offenses and arrests are 
the same. This readily enables comparisons with other states and 
with the nation, as a whole. However, there are limitations to 
the information collected which should be clearly understood 
before any conclusions are drawn from the UCR data presented in 
this report. 

The main goal of the UCR Program is to furnish police 
administrators with a measure of their activities and operational 
problems as indicated by the number of reported offenses, arrests, 
clearances, etc. 

A first step in the control of crime is to ascertain the true 
dimensions of the problem. However, present statistics, as 
gathered by the UCR Program, measure neither the real incidence of 



crime or the full amount of economic loss to victims. Information 
regarding number of offenses, clearances, value and type of 
property stolen and recovered property are collected only for the 
eight Part I offenses. For Part II offenses, the only information 
submitted is the number of arrests for these crimes. 
Consequently, there is no record of the actual number of these 
offenses occurring, or is there a calculation made for property 
loss . 

The Crime Index does not explicitly take into account the varying 
degrees of seriousness of its seven components (excluding arson) . 
Each crime receives the same weight as it is added to the index; 
consequently, an auto theft is counted the same as a murder and an 
aggravated assault is weighed equally with an attempted breaking 
or entering. Any review of crime must consider the volume, rate 
and trend of each offense that comprises the index and the 
relationship between these seven crimes*. 

The Maryland and National Uniform Crime Reporting Programs are 
designed to measure offenses committed and persons arrested. 
Difficulties can arise if this distinction is not kept clearly in 
mind. Crimes relate to events, arrests relate to persons. Unlike 
traffic violations where there is usually one event, violation and 
offender, a single criminal act can involve several crimes, 
offenders and victims. Relating specific crimes to a criminal or 
offense to evaluate characteristics of those arrested is generally 
beyond the scope of the present Uniform Crime reporting System. 

Juvenile crime and arrest statistics, because of their nature, are 
another area of misunderstanding. Many juvenile offenders are 
handled informally. As a consequence, inaccurate or incomplete 
recording of the event or action may result. Procedures for 
handling juveniles vary between departments more so than the 
handling of adult offenders. Furthermore, the degree of juvenile 
involvement in cleared offenses is probably seriously 
misunderstood because the juvenile clearance indicator is recorded 
only when juveniles are exclusively involved. When both adults 
and juveniles are subjects in a clearance, the juvenile 
participation is not reported. 

The preceding comments should not be viewed as an indictment of 
the Uniform Crime Reporting Program which, admittedly, is designed 
for the operational requirements of law enforcement agencies. 
While the current method of gathering and reporting crime and 
arrest data provide a less than complete picture of criminality in 
our society, the FBI has designed the National Incident Based 
Reporting System to address these limitations. 



♦Arson is not used at this time in computing the Crime Index. 



CRIME FACTORS 



Statistics compiled under the Uniform Crime Reporting Program from 
data submitted by Maryland law enforcement agencies projects a 
statewide view of crime. Awareness of the presence of certain 
crime factors, which may influence the resulting volume and type 
of statistics presented, is necessary if fair and equitable 
conclusions are to be drawn. These crime influencing factors are 
present to some degree in every community. Their presence affects 
in varying degrees the crime experience of that community. 
Attempts at comparison of crime figures between communities should 
not be made without first considering the individual factors 
present in each community. 

Crime, as an outgrowth of society, remains a social problem of 
grave concern. The police are limited in their role to its 
suppression and detection. As stated by the President's 
Commission on Law Enforcement and Administration of Criminal 
Justice in their report "The Challenge of Crime in a Free Society" 
(1967 - Page 92) : 

"But the fact that the police deal daily with crime 
does not mean that they have unlimited power to 
prevent it, or reduce it, or deter it. The police did 
not create and cannot resolve the social conditions 
that stimulate crime. They did not start and cannot 
stop the convulsive social changes that are taking 
place in America. They do not enact the laws that 
they are required to enforce, nor do they dispose of 
the criminals they arrest. The police are only one 
part of the criminal justice system; the criminal 
justice system is only one part of the government; and 
the government is only one part of society. In so far 
as crime is a social phenomenon, crime prevention ' is 
the responsibility of every part of society. The 
criminal process is limited to case by case 
operations, one criminal or one crime at a time." 

Listed below are some of the conditions which affect the type and 
volume of crime that occurs from place to place: 

Density and size of the community population 
and the metropolitan area of which it is a 
part . 

Composition of the population with particular 
reference to age, sex and race. 



Economic status of the population. 

Relative stability of the population including 
number and ratio of seasonal visitors, 
residents, commuters and other transients. 

Climate and seasonal weather conditions. 

Educational, recreational and religious 
characteristics 

Standards governing appointments to the police 
force . 

Policies of the prosecuting officials and the 
courts . 

Attitude of the public toward law enforcement 
problems . 

The administrative and investigative efficiency 
of the local law enforcement agency, including 
the degree of adherence to crime reporting 
standards . 

Organization and cooperation of adjoining and 
overlapping police jurisdictions. 



CRIME INDEX OFFENSES 



The crime counts listed in this publication are actual offenses 
established by police investigation. When police receive a 
complaint of a crime and the follow-up investigation discloses no 
crime occurred, it is "unfounded." In 2007, police investigations 
that were "unfounded" represented three percent of the complaints 
concerning index offenses. When comparing individual index 
offenses to the number reported, "unfounded" offenses ranged from 
one percent in the aggravated assault category to 23 percent in 
the rape category. In 2 006, there was one percent "unfounded" in 
the aggravated assault category and 22 percent in the rape 
category. 

A total of 228,859 actual Index Offenses were reported to law 
enforcement agencies in Maryland during the calendar year 2007. 
This represents a decrease of two percent when compared to the 
2006 total of 233,590 Crime Index Offenses. 

An analysis of Index Offenses by month in 2007 shows that July had 
the highest frequency of occurrence, and February had the lowest. 
In 2006, August had the highest frequency of occurrence, and 
February the lowest . 

The Crime Index Offenses represent the most common problem to law 
enforcement. They are serious crimes by their nature, volume, or 
frequency of occurrence. They are categorized as Violent Crimes, 
which includes Murder, Forcible Rape, Robbery and Aggravated 
Assault, or as Property Crimes, which includes Breaking or 
Entering, Larceny-Theft and Motor vehicle Theft. 

VIOLENT CRIME 

Violent Crimes involve the element of personal confrontation 
between the perpetrator and the victim; consequently, they are 
considered more serious than Property Crimes because of their very 
nature. These offenses accounted for 16 percent of the total 
Crime Index for 2007. In 2006, Violent Crimes made up 16 percent 
of the Crime Index Total . Violent Crime decreased one percent 
compared to 2006. 

PROPERTY CRIME 

The number of Property Crimes reported during 2 07 was more than 
five times greater than the number of Violent Crimes reported. As 
a group, Property crimes made up 84 percent of the total Crime 
Index in 2007, the same as in 2006. Property Crime decreased five 
percent when compared to 2 006. 



RATES 

Crime Rates relate the incidence of crime to the resident 
population. Many other factors, which may contribute to the 
volume and type of crime in a given jurisdiction, are not 
incorporated here, but are shown in the section entitled, "Crime 
Factors . " 

In 2007, the Crime Rate for Maryland was 4,073.4 victims for every 
100,000 population. This represents a two percent decrease in the 
crime rate when compared to the 2006 rate of 4,159.6. 

The 2007 Crime Rate for the Violent Crime group was 641.9 victims 
per 100,000 inhabitants, a five percent decrease compared with the 
2006 rate of 678.6. The Property Crime group had a rate of 
3,431.5 victims, a one percent decrease when compared to the 2006 
rate of 3,480.9. 



CLEARANCES 

For Uniform Crime Reporting purposes, a crime is cleared when 
police have identified the offender, have evidence to charge him 
and actually take him into custody. Solutions of crimes are also 
recorded in exceptional instances where some element beyond police 
control precludes formal charges against the offender, such as the 
victim's refusal to prosecute or local prosecution is declined 
because the subject is being prosecuted elsewhere for a crime 
committed in another jurisdiction. The arrest of one person can 
clear several crimes or several persons may be arrested in the 
process of solving one crime. 

Maryland Law Enforcement Agencies cleared 24 percent of all Index 
Offenses reported to them in 2007 and also 2006. 

Violent Crimes recorded a 53 percent clearance rate in 2007 
compared to a 55 percent clearance rate in 2006. The Property 
Crime group experienced an 18 percent clearance rate in 2007 as in 
2006. 

Considered individually, the 2007 Violent Crime clearance rate was 
determined to be 59 percent of the Murders, 56 percent of the 
Rapes, 31 percent of the Robberies and 66 percent of the 
Aggravated Assaults. The Property Crime clearance rates were 17 
percent for Breaking or Entering, 2 percent for Larceny-Theft and 
11 percent for Motor Vehicle Theft. 

The relatively high clearance rate for Violent Crimes as compared 
to Non-Violent Property Crimes is in part attributable to the 
volume difference between the two. Property Crime volume is much 
greater than that of Violent Crime, and police investigation of 
Violent Crime is usually more intense. 

10 



JUVENILE CLEARANCES 

A Juvenile clearance is the clearance of an offense in which all 
of the offenders involved were under the age of 18. If one of the 
offenders was over 17 years of age, the clearance of that offense 
is not considered a juvenile clearance. In 2007, such juvenile 
clearances represented 20 percent of all clearances as in 2006. 

Juvenile clearances in the Violent Crime category represented 14 
percent of the total cleared in 2007, compared to 15 percent in 

2006. The clearances in Violent Crimes are: Homicide two 
percent, Rape six percent, Robbery 23 percent and Aggravated 
Assault 12 percent. 

In the Property Crime category, clearances involving Juvenile 
offenders represented 24 percent of the total cases cleared in 

2007, compared to 23 percent in 2006. The clearances in Property 
crimes are: Burglary 2 percent, Larceny-Theft 24 percent and 
Motor Vehicle Theft 27 percent. 



STOLEN PROPERTY VALUES 

The total value of Property Stolen during 2007 was $345,833,110, 

which represents a four percent decrease from 2006. Recovered 

Property amounted to $123,677,123, which is 36 percent of the 
total stolen, resulting in a $222,155,987 property loss to victims 

in the State of Maryland during 2007. This property loss 

represents an increase of four percent when compared to the 
property loss in 2006.

Murder and non-negligent manslaughter is the 
negligent) killing of one human being by another. 



willful (non- 



VOLUME AND RATE 

During 2007, a total of 553 murders were reported. This 
represents a one percent increase over 2006. Murder accounted 
for two percent of all violent crime and less than one percent 
of the crime index. In 2007, there were 9.8 murders per 100,000 
population. 



ANALYSIS OF MURDER 

In 2007, 326 murders were cleared with two percent of these 
clearances involving only juvenile offenders. A total of 328 
persons were arrested for murder during 2007. A breakdown of 
persons arrested for murder was 93 percent male, seven percent 
female, eight percent juvenile, 77 percent Black, 22 percent 
White and one percent consisting of American Indian and Asian. 

During 2007, 267 of the murder victims were in the 18 to 29 age 
group, representing 48 percent of the total. There were 55 
juvenile victims of murder, accounting for ten percent of the 
total murder victims. 



Handguns were used in 71 percent 
of the reported murders in 2007. 
This represents a four percent 
increase in their use when 
compared to the handgun use in 

2006. The next most used weapon 
was a knife, accounting for 11 
percent of the reported murders in 

2007. This represents a 17 
percent decrease when compared to 
2006. 



Murder Weapons 




l Knife 
11% 



Drug related murders accounted for two percent of the total in 
both 2007 and 2006. 

Family members, as offenders in murder, accounted for ten 
percent while boyfriend or girlfriend (those not cohabitating) 
reflects one percent of the total reported. There was a 31 
percent increase in family-related murders, while boyfriend or 
girlfriend murders increased 100 percent. Additionally, an 



14 



acquaintance is listed in 11 percent of the murders reported in 
2007. Strangers and unknown relationships accounted for two 
other large categories, 15 percent and 80 percent respectively. 

In 46 percent of the murders, the offenders are unknown and not 
described. When the race of the victim and offender is known, 
the offender is most often someone of the same race.

DOMESTIC 
VIOLENCE 



DOMESTIC VIOLENCE 

The Domestic Violence Act of 1994 mandated that all law 
enforcement agencies in Maryland submit copies of their police 
reports of incidences involving domestic violence to the Maryland 
State Police. Through the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting 
Program, a revised Battered Spouse data collection form was 
created. This new form allowed for the collection of more data, 
which is based upon a revised definition of a domestic violence 
incident under the guidelines of the Maryland Uniform Crime 
Reporting Program. 

Under the Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program the definition 
for a domestic violence incident is considered "An individual who 
has received deliberate physical injury or is in fear of imminent 
deliberate physical injury from a current or former spouse or a 
current or former cohabitant. This includes a homosexual 

relationship." In addition, a domestic violence incident in the 

Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program is considered to be any 
crime against : 

• A married person living with their spouse. 

• A married person estranged from their spouse. 

• A male and female in an intimate relationship who 
are not married to each other and who are 
cohabiting or had cohabited. 

• Individuals of the same sex in an intimate 
relationship who are cohabiting or had cohabited. 

It should be noted that prior to 1996, the statistical information 
collected was only on assaults to a domestic partner and did not 
include individuals of the same sex in an intimate relationship 
who are cohabiting or had cohabited. The following information 
gives a more comprehensive report that includes statistics based 
on the revised definition of domestic violence, including all 
crimes .

DOMESTIC VIOLENCE CRIMES 

There are limitations to the information collected which should be 
clearly understood before any conclusions are drawn from the data 
presented in this report. Procedures for handling domestic 
violence crimes vary between law enforcement agencies and counties 
of occurrence. 

The current method of collecting domestic violence information for 
this report provides less than a complete picture. There is at 
present no other statewide informational system in general use 
gathering these statistics from law enforcement agencies that will 
more accurately perform this task. 

The Baltimore Police Department was unable to provide any 2003 
Domestic Violence Statistics to the Maryland Uniform Crime 
Reporting Program due to data conversion. Therefore, there were a 
total of 19,391 domestic violence crimes reported in 2007, as 
compared to 21,965 crimes in 2006, resulting in a 12 percent 
decrease. The breakdown is as follows:

Analysis 

In 2007, 50 percent of all domestic violent crimes occurred 
between the hours of 6:00 P.M. to 1:00 A.M., inclusive. Thirty- 
seven percent of domestic violent crimes occurred during Saturday 
and Sunday. When combining these two categories, this would 
indicate that an intensive period for domestic violent crimes 
occurs between 6:00 P.M. and 1:00 A.M. on Saturday and Sunday. 



'Baltimore Police Department was unable to provide any 2003 Domestic Violence statistics to the 
Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program due to data conversion.

CLEARANCES 

There are two ways of clearing a case. One is by making an arrest 
and charging the person (s) with the offense. The second is known 
as an exceptional clearance. Exceptional clearance means the 
police know the identity and location of the person (s) who 
committed the offense and have enough information to arrest them. 
However, there is some reason beyond their control that prevents 
them from making the arrest . 

The arrest and exceptional clearances reported reflect the 
disposition at the time the domestic violence report form was 
forwarded to the Uniform Crime Reporting Program. These reports 
are not updated; therefore, other arrests and exceptional 
clearances may occur, but would not be reflected in the following 
totals .

ARREST DATA 



ARREST DATA 



The Maryland Uniform Crime Reporting Program requires the submission 
of monthly reports of persons arrested in the State. A record of 
arrest activity for both Part I and Part II crimes are received from 
state, county and municipal law enforcement agencies showing the 
age, sex and race of persons arrested. Traffic arrests, except 
Driving While Intoxicated, are not reported. A total of 298,320 
arrests for Part I and Part II criminal offenses were reported 
during 2007. In 2006, there were 305,675 arrests, which represents 
a two percent decrease. Based on 2007 population estimates, there 
were 5,309.7 arrests per 100,000 population in Maryland The arrest 
rate for 2006 was 5,443.2, representing a three percent arrest rate 
decrease . 

A person is counted on the monthly arrest report each time they are 
arrested. This means that a person may be arrested several times 
during a given month and would be counted each time. However, a 
person is counted only once each time regardless of the number of 
crimes or charges involved. A juvenile is counted as "arrested" 
when the circumstances are such that, if the juvenile was an adult, 
an arrest would have been counted or when police or other official 
action is taken beyond a mere interview, warning or admonishment. 

Arrest figures do not indicate the number of individuals arrested or 

summoned since, as stated above, one person may be arrested several 

times during the month. However, arrest information is useful in 

measuring the extent of law enforcement activities in a given 

geographic area, as well as providing an index for measuring the 

involvement in criminal acts by the age, sex and race of 
perpetrators . 

During 2007, 16 percent of all reported arrests were for Crime Index 
Offenses, as in 2006. Analysis of Crime Index Arrest Data indicates 
that larceny-theft comprised the highest percentage of all arrests 
for Crime Index Offenses, with 51 percent of the total in 2007, up 
from 49 percent in 2006. The drug abuse, other assaults, driving 
under the influence and disorderly conduct categories recorded the 
highest percentage of arrests for Part II offenses. Theses offenses 
accounted for 47 percent of the total arrests for Part II offenses 
in 2007.

VIOLENT CRIME ARRESTS 

Violent Crime arrests represented 27 percent of all arrests for 
Crime Index Offenses and four percent of the total arrests in both 
2006 and 2007. 

A further evaluation indicates that arrests for robbery and 
aggravated assault represented the highest percentage of the total 
arrests for violent crimes with 33 and 62 percent, respectively. 

PROPERTY CRIME ARRESTS 

Property Crime arrests represented 73 percent of all arrests for 
Crime Index Offenses and 12 percent of the total arrests. In 2006, 
Property Crime arrests represented 73 percent of all arrests for 
Crime Index Offenses and 11 percent of the total arrests. 

The highest percentage of property crime arrests, 69 percent, 
continues to occur in the larceny- theft category. 

GAMBLING ARRESTS 

A total of 454 gambling arrests were reported during 2007. In 2006, 
356 persons were arrested for Gambling violations resulting in a 28 
percent increase . 

Arrests for Gambling offenses amounted to less than one percent of 
all reported Part I and Part II arrests in 2007. Persons under the 
age of 18 made up 20 percent of all Gambling arrests in 2007, 
compared to 24 percent in 2006.

DRUG ABUSE VIOLATION ARRESTS 

Information pertaining to drug abuse violation arrests is collected 
according to specific drug categories and whether the arrest was for 
sale or manufacture or possession of a specific drug. During 2007, 
a total of 55,408 arrests for drug abuse law violations were 
reported, compared to 56,728 drug abuse law violation arrests in 
2 006, resulting in a two percent decrease. 

115 



Evaluation of the reported data discloses that 31 percent of all 
persons arrested for drug abuse violations were under 21 years of 
age, and 14 percent were under 18 years of age in 2007, compared to 
31 and 13 percent respectively in 2006. 

Analysis of individual categories showed that the highest percentage 
of arrests, which involved opium or cocaine and derivatives, was 52 
percent in 2007 and 56 percent in 2006. Drug abuse arrests for 
marijuana increased to 45 percent in 2007 from 41 percent in 2006. 
Of the total drug abuse arrests, 76 percent were for possession, 
while 24 percent were for sale or manufacture in 2007, as in 2006. 

Possession of marijuana increased to 40 percent of the total drug 
abuse arrests in 2007, from 36 percent in 2006. Possession of opium 
or cocaine and derivatives represented 3 5 percent of the total drug 
abuse arrests in 2007, a decrease from 37 percent in 2006. Arrests 
for sale or manufacture of marijuana amounted to five percent of the 
total drug abuse arrests in 2007. Sale or manufacture of opium or 
cocaine and derivatives decreased to 17 percent of the total drug 
abuse arrests in 2007, as compared to 18 percent in 2006. 

To aid in the study of drug arrests a chart by county is provided.

LAW 

ENFORCEWMENT 

OFFICERS 

KILLED AND 

ASSAULTED 



LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS KILLED 

Four law enforcement officers died in the line-of-duty in Maryland 
during 2007. The following summaries are based on information 
provided by their agencies and the Federal Bureau of 
Investigation. The Federal Bureau of Investigation conducts in- 
depth investigations of these tragic incidents in which law 
enforcement officers have made the supreme sacrifice in the 
performance of their duties. 



January 9, 2007 

A 13 year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department was shot and 
killed in an apparent robbery attempt. The 34 year old officer 
had arrived outside his home in the early morning when he was 
attacked by the suspect announcing a robbery. During the 
confrontation, the officer identified himself drawing his weapon 
and badge. 



April 4, 2007 

A 24 year old Montgomery County Police officer was struck and 
killed as a result of an on-duty related motor vehicle collision. 
The one year veteran was chasing a drunken driving suspect on foot 
when he was struck by a police cruiser. 



June 17, 2007 

A 13 year veteran of the Howard County Police Officer was killed 
when struck by a car he was trying to stop for speeding. The 31 
year old officer was working on speed enforcement when he stepped 
into the road to wave over a vehicle and he was struck. 



December 19, 2007 

A 25 year old officer with the Smithsburg Police Department was 
fatally shot in a confrontation with a man who had just stabbed a 
woman during a domestic dispute. The two-year veteran of the 
police department was responding to a possible domestic homicide 
call when the man shot at the patrol vehicle as it approached. 
After an exchange of gunfire, the officer was killed. 



203 



LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS ASSAULTED 

The following information is based on a detailed monthly 
collection of data in the Uniform Crime Reporting System regarding 
the problem of assaults on local, county and state law enforcement 
officers. The large number of reported assaults on sworn officers 
is in part due to a prevalent attitude of disrespect for law 
enforcement in certain elements of our society. 

A total of 4,024 law enforcement officers in Maryland were victims 
of assault in the line-of-duty during 2007, compared to 4,177 
assaults during 2006, resulting in a four percent decrease. 

The rate of assaults on law enforcement officers for the State was 
26 assaults per every 100 sworn officers in 2007, compared to 28 
assaults per every 100 sworn officers in 2006. 

Physical force was used in 87 percent of all assaults on police 
officers . 

The greatest number of assaults, 31 percent, occurred while 
officers were responding to disturbance calls (family disputes, 
man with a gun, etc.) and 28 percent of assaults on police 
officers occurred between 10:00 P.M. and 2:00 A.M. 

A total of 3,766 assaults on law enforcement officers were cleared 
during 2007, amounting to a 94 percent clearance rate.

LAW ENFORCEMENT EMPLOYEE DATA 



POLICE EMPLOYEE DATA 

The Uniform Crime Reporting Program in Maryland incorporates the 
collection of pertinent data relating to the police of the State. 
Information regarding police employee strength is discussed in this 
section. 

This information is submitted by county, municipal and state law 
enforcement agencies and compiled on an annual basis. Specific 
information concerning the number of law enforcement employees 
reflects the status as of October 31, 2007. 

LAW ENFORCEMENT EMPLOYEE RATES 

In 2007, the average number of full-time law enforcement employees 
(state, county and municipal) including civilian employees, amounted 
to 3.7 for each 1,000 inhabitants of the State. In 2006, the average 
number of full-time law enforcement employees amounted to 3.6 for 
each 1,000 inhabitants. The rate based on sworn personnel only 
amounted to 2.8 per 1,000 population. In 2006, the rate of sworn 
personnel only amounted to 2 . 7 per 1,000 population. 

The ratio of law enforcement employees per 1,000 population in any 
given area or municipality is influenced by a number of factors, much 
the same as the crime rate. The determination of law enforcement 
strength for a given county or municipality is based on factors such 
as population density, size and character of the community, 
geographic location, proximity to metropolitan areas and other 
conditions which exist in the area generating the need for law 
enforcement services. Employee rates also differ among agencies 
since, in particular, there is a wide variation of the 
responsibilities and level of activity within various law enforcement 
agencies. The information in this section relates to reported police 
employee strength and should not be interpreted as recommended 
strength for any area. 

CIVILIAN EMPLOYEES 

The personnel of each law enforcement agency differ as to the demands 
and responsibilities placed before them. Many police officers are 
fully occupied with clerical tasks and are not free to perform active 
police duties. Some police administrators use civilians in this 
capacity, thus freeing the sworn personnel for actual police-related 
services . 

As of October 31, 2007, 5,135 or 25 percent of the total number of 
police employees in Maryland, were civilian.
